The buildings surrounding this square is beautiful and made me think I was in Germany instead of France. There's lots to see, including the spot nearby where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.

A walk down this street will take you back to another time and place! There are structures/houses that have been standing for centuries; some look like they are leaning precariously. The walkways are narrow and uneven, and paved with cobblestones. Very charming!
